          The beds are comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. We were only 2 in the dorm due to Covid which I appreciated. There is a public parking close to the hostel. I recommend it.
          There is no big locker in the bedroom for suitcase or big bags. The kitchen closes a little early (COVID restrictions).

          The hotel is in an excellent location and the rooms and shared bathrooms were super clean. The staff is super friendly
          The bulb in our room was not working and since we arrived late they could not change it. However, the staff offered us an extra bedside lamp so we had enough light

          Location was excellent. Bathrooms sparkling clean which is important for a hostel.
          Usage hours for the kitchen didn&#39;t make sense (6-10am and 6-8pm). So I&#39;m not able to make lunch during my stay? Staff who apparently live on-site have access to the kitchen all day. Policy ...

          The facilities were exceptionally clean. They have a huge kitchen with lounge area (lounge was closed due to covid), but the kitchen itself was huge, well stocked with utensils, cups, plates, etc.
          There&#39;s no A&#47;C, the property mgmt put fans into each room.
